HOUSTON DAILY TIMES. The Houston Daily Times, as well as the Houston Weekly Times, originated in Houston when A. H. Osborn and G. W. Lively bought the plant of the Houston National Intelligencer. The daily was published for city subscribers from March 4, 1840, until sometime the next month; the weekly, for country subscribers, appeared on April 2, 1840, and ran until July 1840. Both the daily and weekly Times were four-page, five-column sheets, measuring seventeen by twenty-four inches, that sought to publicize the city of Houston.
